So it sounds like Jonas Hiller isn’t going anywhere

There are good goaltending logjams and there are bad goaltending logjams. The Anaheim Ducks have a good one, with no less than four netminders who could claim crease time and do it effectively.

One of them is Jonas Hiller, who is having a ridiculous season with 12 straight wins, but who has an expiring contract this summer.

Some have speculated that the Ducks would sell high with Hiller, given that they have Viktor Fasth, Frederik Andersen and blue-chipper John Gibson behind him and under contract. GM Bob Murray told ESPN.com’s Pierre LeBrun that’s not the case … at all:

"There's not a chance in hell that I'm moving Jonas Hiller," Murray told ESPN.com on Tuesday evening. "I'm tired of hearing about the rumors. I can tell you Jonas is not going anywhere."

This doesn’t exactly address what the hell they’re going to do in the offseason with Hiller, as the goalie and his agent are taking a wait-and-see approach with his future. The Ducks will have a projected $23 million in cap space next season via Cap Geek, with 16 players under contract.

But the real issue is Hiller’s: For how much, and for how long, would he commit to Anaheim? Or will he join Ryan Miller and Jaroslav Halak (potentially) on the UFA market?
